video decoder that leaves your CPU unbound to do other tasks. Enjoy digital content

many cards that are simply first to market, Diamond carefully tests and retests every
new model for its ratio of performance to reliability. Diamond is legendary in the PC

approximately 10 percent. Diamond cards use superior connectors, cables and
components, as well as undergo more thorough testing for heat susceptibility and
